$9 Million Goal

Most Precious Blood Catholic Community is a growing, lively and thriving community. We are a community with a rich tradition of faith and charity. As we continue to grow in the spirit of our mission, we must look at ways to improve our parish for the good of our community and those we serve, now and in the future.

Most Precious Blood leaders have taken great care to assess our current situation and needs for the future. We are currently limited in our programing, spiritual opportunities and outreach abilities due to a lack of appropriate space. Our current Parish Center does not meet the growing demands of programing and events. Furthermore, several areas of our campus require significant attention. Waiting any longer to address our maintenance issues could result in more expensive projects in the future.

In March 2015, our parish conducted a planning study to determine whether it was feasible to conduct a capital campaign. With more than 40 percent of our families participating in this study, we discovered there was the necessary support and a strong willingness to give in order to proceed with a campaign to address the parish’s needs. With the generous support of our parish families, our focus will be on physically and spiritually supporting our growing, vibrant community through the successful completion of our capital campaign: Here for Good.

New Projects

New Parish Hall – A brand new hall, attached to the church with 5717 sq. ft. above ground  will provide:

  • A hall to accommodate multiple large gatherings including funeral luncheons and weddings
  • Multiple meeting rooms and gathering spaces for various ministry meetings and events
  • An updated kitchen to meet the needs of events
  • Handicap accessibility
  • Existing restrooms in church to be remodeled to improve accessibility
  • Semi-Finished Basement 5395 sq. ft. for future parish needs

New Parish Offices – The former convent, built in 1963, has served as our Parish Office for many years. We have made the best use of the space it has provided, but it is simply inefficient, inaccessible, and not a space that could address our needs with a remodel. This building will be razed and the current Parish Center will be remodeled as new offices for parish staff.  It will provide:

  • Up-to-date technology
  • Access for parishioners and guests with disabilities
  • Well-designed interior offices with natural light
  • The ability to adjust to future needs
  • Designated Concession area for gym
  • Updated restrooms south of the gym

Site Improvements

  • School Playground that will include an artificial turf play field
  • New Facility Maintenance building
  • Foundation for Greenhouse
  • Appropriate fencing around the Peace Garden

Deferred Maintenance Projects

Through this campaign, we will be able to make much needed and critical improvements, including:

  • A new roof for the church, school and gym
  • Replacement of the school sewer line
